Jared Kushner Once Again Looks and Sounds Like a Detached Alien

Views expressed in The Advocate’s opinion articles are those of the writers and do not necessarily represent the views of The Advocate or our parent company, equalpride. There have plenty of appalling relevations in recent books about Donald Trump's presidency.In The Divider: Trump in the White House, 2017-2021 by Peter Baker and Susan Glasser, we learned about this exchange between Trump and Gen. John Kelly, who was White House chief of staff for a time:“You fucking generals, why can’t you be like the German generals?” Trump said to Kelly.“Which generals?” Kelly asked.“The German generals in World War II,” Trump responded.“You do know that they tried to kill Hitler three times and almost pulled it off?” Kelly said.“No, no, no, they were totally loyal to him,” came Trump’s bizarre response.From I'll Take Your Questions Now byStephanie Grisham, who was Trump's press secretary, we learned that Trump cut his own hair with scissors that were big enough to “cut a ribbon at an opening of one of his properties.”In The Room Where it Happened, former Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton writes that when Trump was speaking with British Prime Minister Theresa May about Russia, he asked, "'Oh, are you a nuclear power?' Which I knew was not intended as a joke."Then in Breaking History by Trump son-in-law and former Senior Advisor Jared Kushner, there is this quote: “Jared’s a genius.

Theresa May urges Boris Johnson to ban trans conversion therapy
Theresa May has called on Boris Johnson to ban transgender conversion, four years after she vowed to make the practice illegal.Conversion therapy refers to any form of treatment or psychotherapy which aims to change a person’s sexual orientation or to suppress a person’s gender identity.It is based on an assumption that being lesbian, gay, bi or trans is a mental illness that can be ‘cured’.In 2018, Ms May announced plans to ban conversion therapy, adding ‘No one should ever have to hide who they are or who they love’.But plans never came to fruition and conversion therapy remains legal in the UK.In late March, Boris Johnson dropped plans to ban any conversion therapy, but U-turned within hours following backlash.The Government later outlined legislation – the Conversion Therapy Bill – in the Queen’s Speech which would ban conversion therapy intended to change someone’s sexual orientation in certain scenarios.But it said that, due to the ‘complexity of issues and need for further careful thought’, the legislation would not ban transgender conversion therapy.Huge protests were held outside Downing Street following the news.Writing in the i for the 50th anniversary of the UK’s first Pride, Mrs May has now urged her successor to end conversion therapy once and for all.She wrote: ‘Few people, reading of accounts from trans people, would disagree that they still face indignities and prejudice, when they deserve understanding and respect.‘We need to strive for greater understanding on both sides of the debate.
First openly trans MP accuses government of ‘breaking promise’ to LGBT people
ban on conversion therapy.Jamie Wallis, Conservative MP for Bridgend, came out in defence of trans rights this week, accusing Boris Johnson of ‘breaking his promise’ to LGBT+ people.The Welsh Backbencher was praised for his bravery last week after he revealed he is trans in a highly personal statement on Twitter. Following theTory U-turn on the conversion therapy ban, he said it is ‘wrong to exclude protections for a whole group of people’ from an ‘abhorrent’ practice.‘I hope the announcement that a separate piece of work will now be done on this issue will be done at speed,’ Mr Wallis added.‘If the CT (conversion therapy) ban passes through Parliament without any protections for the transgender community, it cannot be described as anything other than a broken promise.’His comments come as more than 100 charities, including Stonewall, plan to boycott the government’s first global LGBT+ conference over its stance on conversion therapy.It is now unclear if the ‘Safe To Be Me: Global Equality Conference’ in London will go ahead after the LGBT+ and HIV charities, along with major sponsors, pulled out just three months before the event.A government spokesperson said it was ‘disappointing’ to see partners quit the conference, which was set to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the first ever London Pride march.They added officials are still ‘considering how to proceed’.In a statement on Twitter yesterday, Stonewall said it will only participate if the prime minister reverts to his promise for a trans-inclusive ban on conversion therapy.‘This is a decision we take with a heavy heart,’ it said.
